In my series of introductory guitar lessons on the Major Scale and modes, I showed you various shapes for scales, including three-note-per-string shapes for playing across 6 strings.
As with most of my guitar lessons, now we will build on knowledge you already gained, and we will take your scale knowledge and technique to the next level. Now it is time to play 3 octave shapes which will be one of the most useful skills you can develop to achieve total freedom of motion across the fretboard.
Since I am a big believer in using visualization techniques for furthering one's mastery of the fretboard, I will show you how to use symmetries on the fretboard for each scale/mode as a way to get these 3 octave scale shapes implanted in your mind's eye. So let's get started!
